I was inspired by Chinese philosopher Zeng Zi (505-435 BC) who wrote,in the first chapter of Classic of Filial Piety, that our body, skin, and hair are all received from our parents; we dare not injure them. Imitating the format of medical documentation, the work proceeds in an absurd ritual of arranging and layering our bodily curves, sections of skin and geometric forms on the blank digital canvas. Exploring the meticulous and abstract features of kinship, I also replaced the skin of my back with hundreds of tiny pixels selected from the image of my mom’s back. When my back became a canvas here, the fragments of our skins mixed unrecognizably, echoing the physical and emotional bonds of kinship that pass between us.
